Small Towns With Big (And Peculiar!) Celebrations

Everyone loves a small town festival. They give you a chance to soak in the local culture and have a little fun at the same time. There are loads of festivals scattered around the United States and the rest of the world, many of which have unique themes. You won’t believe what they have to offer (or the disgusting items included on some of the menus)!

Frozen Dead Guy Days, Nederland, CO


This festival, which takes place for three days in March, has been called “frigidly fun.” The town has a population of less than 1,500 people and is located in the mountains of Colorado. Each year the residents pay tribute to a man named Bredo Morstol, a Norwegian man who was cryogenically frozen and is kept in a shed above the town. During the event, attendees listen to live music, imbibe in alcohol, and eat a lot of food. There are also some pretty cool things to do for entertainment, such as race coffins or participate in a frozen t-shirt contest.
